meet at one point.
stay the same distance apart. They will never intersect.

Formula for a rectangle (Perimeter/Area)
Perimeter = l + l + w + w = 2 × l + 2 × w
Area = l × w
Formula for a square (Perimeter/Area)
Perimeter = s + s + s + s = 4 × s
Area = s2
Formula for a Parallelogram (Perimeter/Area)
Perimeter = a + a + b + b = 2 × a + 2 × b
Area = b × h
Formula for a Rhombus (Perimeter/Area)
Perimeter = b + b + b + b = 4 × b
Area = b × h
Formula for a Triangle (Perimeter/Area)
Perimeter = a + b + c
Area = (b × h)/2
Formula for a Trapezoid (Perimeter/Area)

How to find a perimeter on a Coordinate Grid
Step 1: Find the length of the vertical segments. Since one pair of vertical segments has (-3,2) and (-3,-1) the length is the difference of the y-coordinates 2-(-1), or 3.
Step 2: Find the length of the horizontal segments. Since one pair of horizontal segments has coordinates (-3,2) and (4,2) the length is the difference of the x-coordinates 4-(-3) or 7. The perimeter of the rectangle is 3+3+7+7.

The area of a square one inch long and one inch wide.
Measuring the Area of a Rectangle
Step 1: Measure the sides of the rectangle
Find the length= 4 inches
Find the width= 1.25 inches
Step 2: 4 inches X 1.25 inches= 5 square inches.
A four sided polygon.
A quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides. parallel and equal.
A measure of the perpendicular distance between two lines.
